I didn’t really have a theme in mind when I started pulling images for today, but I began with Dot Lady, then remembered the splendidly obscured figures of John Batho, and voilà, chose one of Matt Wisniewski’s collages to finish.
I don’t know about you, but when I look at these three things, I immediately conjure up science fiction and fantasy ideas. Mysterious shadowy observers! Ephemeral beings with long flowing locks of hair! Bodies that materialize out of thin air!
How about you?
